With cost reductions averaging 15-20 percent, this service enables procurement teams to be a true source of value across the enterprise, cutting operating expenses and freeing capital for other initiatives. To eliminate client risk, we refuse compensation unless measurable cost savings are generated.

Even with a seasoned internal procurement team, it’s difficult to maintain specific expertise in areas as specialized and complex as software/licensing negotiations. Our seasoned Strategic Sourcing specialists have vast negotiating experience with top software makers, as well as many boutique publishers, across many licensing and SaaS models. Additionally, we consult on IT procurement spend analytics to help you categorize spending, develop a spend calendar, and assess opportunities for cost savings over a multi-year timeframe.
